Students are expected to attend school punctually and regularly. Should a student be absent for any period, a note, email or phone call from a parent or carer must be received. Notes should be handed to the Roll Group teacher or the Student Window on the first day the student returns to school. This note may be brought in prior to a known absence. It would be appreciated if parents/carers, who know that their child's absence will be for a significant period, could inform the school either by letter or telephone (6205 7603).
The school also operates an automated attendance notification system called SMS TruancyCall. Parents/carers of students that are marked absent from school on any day, that have not contacted the school before 9:30am, will receive either a phone message or a text message to their mobile phone informing them of the absence. The automated system includes options for parents/carers to respond by providing information that explains the absence. Where student absence is not authorised (truanting) parents/carers are requested to contact the Rolls phone number (6205 7603) or email to: email@example.com
Students arriving after the commencement of Roll Group must report to the Student Window or Front Office before going to class, whether or not they have a note to explain their lateness.
A student wishing to leave school before the end of Time Block 5 on any school day should bring a note, signed by a parent or guardian, which indicates briefly the reason for the request. The note should be presented to the Student Window prior to lesson 1, if the student wishes to leave before recess, or at recess if the student wishes to leave after this time. As far as possible, parents/carers are asked to arrange medical, dental and orthodontic appointments outside school hours.
Students who become ill at school must report to the Student Window. If students are in need of First Aid they should also report to the Student Window where medical attention will be given. If students are to be sent home, parents will be notified. Students are not to use their own phones to call parents if they are sick, staff will verify information from the schools database and will call parents/carers, this is for security purposes.
Lockers are available for student use, and are allocated early in the school year. It is the responsibility of each student to maintain the locker in good order, to provide a padlock for security and to ensure that no food is kept in the locker. The hire fee of $30 per year students can pay the hire fee separately at the Finance Office.
Textbooks are issued on a Curriculum Area basis and each area has its own policy. Students are expected to replace or pay for damaged or lost textbooks. Students are expected to maintain the textbooks in good condition and may choose to protect the books by covering them in plastic or contact.
Some courses require specific workbooks, eg. LOTE and English. These workbooks can be purchased as part of the Stationery Pack or individually. Details regarding the type of workbook, costs etc are available from the Executive Teacher in each Key Learning Area.

- PE uniform is compulsory. It consists of a designated T-shirt or rugby top, navy shorts or tracksuit pants. Students are not permitted to participate in PE in the clothes they wear to school. PE tops are available from the SAVVY.

The Student Services team handles lost property. Every effort is made to trace the owners of property handed in. It is recommended that all clothing and personal items be clearly marked with the student's name. Any property not claimed at the end of each term is donated to a charity.
Information about changes in arrangements, together with news of coming events, students' achievements, and items of educational or community interest, is given in the schools newsletter, which is posted home monthly. Alternatively, parents can arrange to receive it by email. School Newsletter
The school aims to be responsive to the needs of all members of the school community. Any student, parent, teacher or citizen who has any comment, positive or negative, about the school can be assured that their opinion will receive careful consideration.
Comments concerning students are best referred to the Student Services Coordinator or the relevant Year Adviser. Comments about staff should usually be referred to the Executive Teachers of Curriculum Areas in the first instance. There will be occasions when it may be more appropriate to approach the Principal or a Board representative to discuss concerns. If in doubt, contact the Administrative Staff in the Front Office.
